Our Skin Condition Services
At Placer Dermatology, we provide a variety of treatments for skin conditions in Roseville. Skin problems like acne, eczema, and warts can cause a number of issues and may worsen with time. Our treatments restore the health and appearance of the skin.
Acne is a skin condition that occurs when the pores become clogged due to dead skin cells and sebum (oil). These conditions are a breeding ground for bacteria, resulting in inflammation and swelling. Acne vulgaris is a chronic condition that usually occurs during puberty. Acne may worsen due to cosmetic products, medications, diet, and stress.
Mild to moderate acne can be treated with topical medications containing salicylic acid, glycolic acid, benzoyl peroxide, or retinol. For moderate to severe acne, we may recommend prescription topical antimicrobials and retinoids, oral antibiotics and contraceptives, or isotretinoin.
Eczema causes skin inflammation, itchiness, and rashes. It can occur in children, adolescents, and adults. There are many types of eczema, including seborrheic dermatitis, atopic dermatitis, dyshidrotic eczema, or nummular eczema.
Eczema treatment will depend on the cause and severity of the skin condition. OTC medications are available, along with oral prescription drugs and a number of other treatment options.
Psoriasis is an autoimmune-disease skin condition. It appears in the form of plaques on the skin. The patient will feel moderate to severe itchiness and a burning sensation. This skin condition can occur on multiple parts of the body, including the face, palms, back, and feet. For severe cases of psoriasis, we recommend oral medication or systemic injection treatments.
Rosacea has symptoms of redness and visible blood vessels. It also causes small red pus-filled bumps. It commonly affects the face and cheeks; rosacea usually occurs on the nose for men and the cheeks or chin for women. Depending on the severity of this skin condition, we will recommend OTC drugs, prescription medications, topical creams, or moisturizers for treatment.
Moles are characterized by brown or dark skin growths. They vary in size from small to medium. Moles can develop into melanoma (a type of skin cancer). We offer mole removal services to patients who are bothered by their moles.
Warts are another type of skin growth. The main cause of warts is the human papillomavirus (HPV). Warts are contagious, and a person can get infected through physical contact. Warts can occur in different parts of the body, especially in the hands, feet, face, and genitals.
Aside from wart-removal medications, we offer a variety of wart-removal treatments, such as cryotherapy, laser treatment, excision, and curettage.
